Center for Civic Engagement
The Center for Civic Engagement at Drew University was established in 2008 to infuse civic engagement as a value and practice throughout the university. The Center connects community-focused, experiential education across all of Drew’s Schools, while also strengthening student-led community engagement outside the classroom. We believe that well-informed civic participation and the active pursuit of a just and humane society are crucial to a strong democracy and the vibrant communities that make up its fabric.
ValleyArts is an umbrella organization working together with residents, merchants and arts organizations dedicated to building a vital and creative place to live and work. We are located on the border of Orange and West Orange around the NJ Transit Highland Avenue Train Station, in the neighborhood known as the Valley Arts District.
